ACTON, MASS. — Geoffrey S. Bourque, 45, of Acton, Mass., and formerly of Waltham, Mass., died on Friday, Feb. 14, 2014. Geoff was born in Olean, N.Y., on Sept. 23, 1968. Shortly after graduation from Waltham High School he enlisted in the Army.

He was a loyal son, brother, uncle and friend to countless. He had a heart of gold and an affinity with children, often being the “go to” for his eight nieces and nephews. If anyone needed a helping hand, Geoff was there. He loved to spend time in Maine, especially at Hills Beach in Biddeford. He was a devoted Boston sports fan and his favorite teams were the Patriots and Red Sox.

He is survived by his parents, Eugene B. and Barbara A. (Scala) Bourque of Brownfield, Maine; his siblings, Brian K. Bourque and his wife, Deborah, of Watertown, Mass., Kevin J. Bourque, and his wife, Catherine, of Apex, N.C., Patricia N. Bourque of Litchfield, N.H., Angela M. Bourque of Biddeford, Maine, and Jennifer A. Bourque of Brownfield, Maine; his nieces and nephews, Paige, Colin, Samuel, Emily, Danielle, Crystal, Dylan and Monica; and his former wife Deborah (Ranger) Bourque.

He was also the son of the late Judyth A. (Woods) Bourque, who died on December 20, 1977.

Family and friends will honor and remember Geoff's life by gathering for calling hours on Sunday, Feb. 23, 2014, from 2 to 5 p.m., and again on Monday morning before leaving in procession to Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Church, 880 Trapelo Road, Waltham, where his Funeral Mass will be celebrated at a time to be determined.
